SEA ISLAND, Ga. – Junior Tom Brown and sophomore Joe Lewis both carded a 2-over 72 on Friday to lead Ole Miss in the first round of the SEC Championships at the Sea Island Country Club Seaside Course.

Brown and Lewis both notched a pair of birdies en route to a 2-over par in the first round and are currently tied for 23rd. The Rebels are tied with Arkansas for 11th with a team score of 297 heading into Saturday’s second round.

"It was a windy day, and you really had to control your ball flight,” said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. “We were able to do that at times, but didn't finish well on the into-the-wind finishing holes. We missed a few short putts and didn't drive the ball well. We had a good practice session and are trying to correct some mistakes.”

Freshman Forrest Gamble also recorded two birdies in the first round en route to a 5-over 75 and is tied for 43rd. Sophomore Blake Morris carded an 8-over 78 and is tied for 62nd, while freshman Conner Davis recorded an 82 and is in 70th place.

Auburn leads the SEC Championships with a 5-under 275 heading into tomorrow’s second round. The third and final round tees off on Sunday.
